Auto Login

I am struggling to get autologin to work.

I have tried changing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf as described in other posts here and in the lightdm wiki,

[Seat:*]
autologin-user=jp
autologin-user-timeout=0

Running Debian 10 with Xfce4, freshly installed from the Debian repo.

Thanks,
JP.

Re: Auto Login

Well I finally stumbled my way through this.  I noticed that every change I made to the lightdm files had absolutely no effect.  So then I suspected that lightdm is not being used.  In fact GDM3  is being used.

So I changed /etc/gdm3/daemon.conf to

# Enabling automatic login
AutomaticLoginEnable = true
AutomaticLogin = jp

and bingo.
